The Shiv Sena on Wednesday has continued its assault on the Centre over the mutilation of the Indian soldiers by the Pakistan army, putting the onus on the Prime Minister Narendra Modi to reveal how serious he is about in tackling the matter on an international level. Lately, the opposition has planned to tap Shiv Sena, Akali for the presidential election.
“The Prime Minster should disclose as to how many countries are supporting us on this issue. Former defense minister Manohar Parrikar’s previous remark on such problems and his resignation from his post might indicate how serious the government is to tackle this issue,” stated the Shiv Sena mouthpiece Saamana.
The editorial additionally slammed the present Defence Minister Arun Jaitley on saying that just by making the fancy statements of the problem is not going to end, and it is a high time to take some serious action on the same. It also said as quoted “this is the same ruling party in the Centre who declared during the Congress regime to execute 10 Pakistanis if they behead one of ours. The system has changed, but no change can be witnessed in the barbaric condition of our soldiers.”
It further said that the surgical strike that had carried out along the Line of Control (LoC) was not enough to respond to the Pakistan’s attack on Uri, Machil, and Pathankot. Adding that the BJP might consider the UP Assembly Election victory as one of their greatest accomplishments, but the loss of the lives of the Indian soldiers is the biggest defeat of the country.

On expressing the grave concern over the brutal incident, Indian Director-General of Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. Gen. A.K. Bhatt on Tuesday had raised the issue of Border Action Team (BAT) camps near the LoC with his Pakistani counterpart. Bhatt also mentioned the issue of fire support provided by the Pakistani posts. “DGMO Indian Army conveyed that such dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norms of the civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and acknowledgment,” the Indian Army said in a statement.
Earlier on Monday, the Pakistani soldiers along with their BAT, that include trained border inhabitants, launched a joint attack. “Pakistan Army had carried out an unprovoked rocket and mortar firing on two forward posts along the LoC in the Krishna Ghati sector. Concurrently, a BAT action was launched on patrol operating in between the two posts.

In an unsoldierly act by the Pakistan Army, and the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated. Such despicable act of the Pakistan Army would be appropriately responded,” the Indian Army’s statement stated. They first fired the rockets and followed this up with the firing of automatic weapons, near Kranti Post which is located in Poonch’s Krishna Ghati Sector at around 8.30 a.m.
The Pakistanis had then crossed the LoC, and entered 200 meters into the Indian Territory, and has attacked a joint patrol of the Army and Border Security Force (BSF) while heading towards the nearby post. It is the same Krishna Ghati sector in which the Pakistani BAT had beheaded Lance Naik Hemraj and had badly severed the head of Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh of 13 Rajputana Rifles, on 8th January 2013.
